    Falling in Love Slow and Steady

    I loved the idea and story of Charlotte and Con's love story. They slowly fell in love and I appreciate that they didn't immediately fall into bed! Seeing the whole family involved was a bonus. The only thing I didn't feel was a deep connection between them. It felt there at times and others not. The story was a stand alone. I was given a copy by NetGalley.

    Just Perfect

    A fast past adventure that starts out with the heroine, Lady Charlotte Carpenter being kidnapped off the street! Taken to an inn, she is held by rapscallions to be handed off to an enemy of her family that was thought taken out of the picture. But Charlotte keeps her head and is looking for any chance to escape. In comes Constantine, Marquis of Kenilworth who saw the incident happen and speeds off to rescue her. What he finds is a somewhat quirky miss who has her kitten in a handbasket she has carted with her and a gun hidden to defend herself! One thing leads to another and Charlotte appears compromised by Con because he takes her to an inn nearby and tries to pass her off as his wife. Wife you said? How smart is that? This story has a lot of mishaps between Charlotte and Con but there is an underlying serious problem that is addressed with the kidnapping and selling of women and children. This seems to be part of the underbelly of society and Charlotte and her family have been trying to put a stop to what they can. As the story continues, there are serious moments as well as a lot of humor and in the end the attraction between the two. Can true love come out of such a meeting and quick betrothed? Or will they be stuck with each other due to convention? Read to find out what happens in this entertaining story. I want to read the rest of the series now to catch up!

    Loved it!

    The Marquis and I by Ella Quinn is the Fourth book in 'The Worthingtons" series. This is the story of Constantine, Marquis of Kenilworth and Lady Charlotte Carpenter. I have read (and Loved them!) the previous book in this series but feel this can be a standalone book. Charlotte is kidnapped and she is working to escape there clutches when she runs into Con. Con was happy on his way to see his mistress but ended up going after Charlotte who he was told had been kidnapped. Con found Charlotte and tired to help her but they ended up getting caught and he had to make the jester that they were getting married. This was another great book by Ms. Quinn. Just loved it!!

    Just perfect!

    It’s all in the execution, and THE MARQUIS AND I couldn’t have been done any better! Charlotte is not the first kidnapping victim in the extended Worthington family; you’d think this book could be repetitious? No way! The evil Miss Betsy is on the prowl again; her human trafficking activities still go on, and Charlotte must be rescued. Constantine, the Marquis of Kenilworth happens to be at the right place at the right time, or is it at the wrong place at the wrong time. Anyway, he rushes to help Charlotte, who did quite well on her own, thank you very much. Unfortunately, they were seen together by the worst gossip, and they must marry. Charlotte thought Constantine wouldn’t be so bad; he didn’t want to get married right away, but Charlotte is the kind of wife he would be looking for. Until. Until Constantine shares his views on prostitution with Charlotte, and this is where Ella Quinn shines brighter than the sun, the moon, and the stars combined! The conflict between Charlotte and Constantine felt very real; their disagreement is palpable, and the considerable knowledge of the author on the subject made THE MARQUIS AND I a most compelling story. The pacing is superb; the language sublime; the characters felt entirely genuine, down to the secondary characters: Aimée, Constantine’s mistress is one of the highlights of the book, as is little Jemmy. What I found really remarkable was how the conflict contributed to the romance, how it gave Constantine and Charlotte the opportunity to grow, not bicker like stubborn idiots. Charlotte was determined not to marry a degenerate, and Constantine did not go all-alpha and mess everything up: he was willing to listen, he did not bully Charlotte into marrying him for appearances’ sake even though he thought about it, he acted like a man I could respect, and that Charlotte could respect. Although it is book 4 in the Worthingtons series, THE MARQUIS AND I stands perfectly on its own, in spite of the extended Worthington family – of which there are many members indeed. I have had problems recently with romances, especially when it comes to the heroes’ behaviour, but in THE MARQUIS AND I, everything happened how it should have. I am overjoyed! And please, read the Author’s Note: it is utterly fascinating! A fabulous, wonderful, magnificent book! I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
